Member Artwork to Appear at Disability History Scotland Exhibition

Posted: 19/05/2014 | Scottish War Blinded


Scottish War Blinded members’ art and craftwork will be showcased at Disability History Scotland’s pop-up WWI exhibition in June at Ocean Terminal.

The exhibition, from Tuesday 10 to Sunday 15 June 2014, comprises a range of activities, workshops, art and media displays describing attitudinal change towards disability from World War I to present day.

Gary Seath from Scottish War Blinded said:

“Scottish War Blinded has worked closely with Disability History Scotland through a range of World War I commemorative initiatives in 2014. We are delighted our members have been invited to showcase their artwork depicting emotive scenes of trench warfare and reflection as well as woodwork which serves as a strong link to our past providing blinded soldiers returning from WWI with a trade and opportunities to flourish.”

Alex Callaghan from Disability History Scotland said:

“We have collaborated with a number of organisations such as: Houses for Heroes', Scottish Veterans Residencies and Scottish War Blinded in order to build a picture of life for disabled people over the past hundred years. We are delighted to be working alongside Scottish War Blinded and are grateful for members providing their artwork to go on show at the event.”
